Briggs & Stratton 6 HP Petrol Engine and Drive Head Unit



Brief Overview

This unit is used to power drive the hand augers and at 56kgs, can be carried easily by 2 men using the fold-away handles attached to the frame. The Drillmite is powered by a new generation 6HP Briggs & Stratton petrol engine (now made in Japan and has a 2 year world-wide warranty) which has an oil alert automatic shutdown feature and a larger fuel tank. The engine is coupled to a hydraulic pump that is connected by 3.6 metre hoses to the hydraulic motor on the drive head which has fingertip control of the rotation. It turns the auger at 50-rpm under full load with a torque of 1250 inch pounds. It is suited to use in hard ground (not rock) using steel extension roads with coarse threads and spiral augers, but is often used to reduce the effort required on deep holes or continuous sampling regimes in normal conditions using aluminium extension rods with either thread.
